Boronic Acid Modified Polymer Nanoparticles for Enhanced Bacterial Deactivation
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
A new method has been developed to enhance the antibacterial efficiency of traditional antibiotics. Chloramphenicol‐imprinted polymer particles were decorated with boronic acid to improve their binding to both Gram‐negative and ‐positive bacteria. The polymer particles have a high antibiotic loading and provide a slow release of the antibiotic payload to deactivate the target bacteria. The boronic acid modified polymer particles not only contribute to enhanced antibacterial efficiency, but also have the potential to act as scavengers to remove unused antibiotic from the environment.
